Price for being safe
16. jan. 2013 Posted by Eriks

This fine Faberge-craft-like creature is radiolaria. Its size is up to 0,22 mm. It is the most cautious creature in the world. It has not changad during past 160 millions of yeaars. That is the price it has paid for being safe.

Neil French. Riga.
Might be as well Mr. Voland.
21. sep. 2012 Posted by Eriks

Neil French has arrived, has spoken his word, has departed. And apart from losing his luggage, has left more in Latvia than he probably realizes. Not maybe left. Shared. Made an imprint. We at !MOOZ, are extremely happy to be involved in his visit. Certain things allow themselves to be passed further only as life grows rich with Knowledge. I'm writing the word Knowledge with a capital "K", which I generally avoid. This is kind of Knowledge you cannot download on Google. These are years, people, ups and downs that add richness and depth to what is to be said. How and why to speak as a human being (and how and why not as advertising page)? How you interact with audience? How to subtract? How not to fall in the trap of dividing advertising into "ethical" (selling wooden bicycles) and "evil" (selling beer)? Because ... Wait... Being in advertising and moralizing??? Think it througt guys and maybe you'll find out how much hypocricity is in the concept.

"As a bullfighter, bouncer and street-fighter I have around thousand scars on my body. Not a single one comes from advertising. It's just advertising. Kammon! It doesn't kill anybody. If you fuck it up – you fuck it up. Next time do it right. But if you'll fall in that mode "OMG, the world fell apart, I'll never get it right", you'll never get it right. Because of fear. And viewer is the first to smell it." Offtoppic: Neil also has a huge bondage gadgets collection, so we went to Sexystyle for a long-group-excursion. Hilarious! Thanks to @Bufetniece. No pictures, though. After Neil left I still cannot get rid of the feeling we experienced a short visit of Mr. Voland. That guy from Bulgakow's "Master and Margarita". He was just using one of his many identities. And Annushka has already spilled the oil.

Picture thanks to Uldis Ziedins @uldisz

Link with Neil's speech – Coming Shoon, will keep you updated.

It was the most intense learning experience ever - 3 full days all about how Internet and technologies have changed our perceptions and the way we communicate. I came back very excited and here are some main findings I want to share. Can be related to people, products, brands, companies.

When you are given answer, you don’t have to think any more.

It will never go back the way it was before. You can be either the one affecting it, or the one affected.

Ostrich's head in the sand is not a problem. The problem is that his ass is out.

1995. The first week
02. aug. 2012 Posted by Eriks

While flipping through my dad's album (the heavy, mysterously smelling thing you must hold with your hands, chest and chin for not letting it fall apart) I sudenly came across this. The first months of "advertising agency ZOOM!", later known as !MOOZ. The year was 1995. Square meters: 9. Equippment: 2 Mac Quadras. Raivo holds a fresh-produced cut-out 3M sticker for (as far as I remember) a theatre festival. Me taking care of new business. Yes, it was totally acceptable then to wear your shirt stuffed in your trousers. Apparently, we had higher moral statndards. Raivo successfully runs Magnum NT now. We have grown in size since then. I just bought a pair of jeans and I think it was 40 L.

You are = You can
25. jun. 2012 Posted by Mooz

You are = You can. In other words, you exist, therefore you are able to.  The core essence of Citadele Bank. The only true local bank in Latvia. The underdog in terms of size, access to money and all resurces of advertising. Despite that Citadele is one of most successful and inspirational examples in Latvian business for past decade. You are = You can. So we started with most obvious yet shocking. Paralympic team. If those guys being paralyzed, blind, deaf can qualify for Olympics, I want to hear your argument why tou can't do it/afford it/own it. Thank you, Citadele! Rest will follow.

Latvian Contemporary Art Show
We're proud to be part of it
03. jan. 2012 Posted by Eriks

Is it art? Is it business? Should it provoke, should it sell, should it be funny, should it be shocking? Does it lead or is it led? One of largest collections of Latvian contemporary art is set up as the exhibition in the major art space in Latvia – exhibition hall "Arsenals". We're truly honored to be part of it.

As one art critic said – you may disagree with concept of advertising, but you cannot ignore its impact on culture. Thats what great advertising does.

Love

    Vienmēr dzīvojam nākotnē. Vienmēr domājam par to, kā būs. Šodien nolēmām ieskatīties pagātnē. Acu skatienu piesaistīja viens no mīļajiem projektiem - "Runājošie akmeņi", kuri tālajā 2005. gadā atradās Parīzē, tieši Luvras priekšā, un francūžiem stāstīja, dziedāja un ik pa brīdim arī gulēja par Latviju. Vācu / franču kanāls ARTE pagodināja "akmeņus" ar 20 minūšu īsfilmu/sižetu. Iespējams - augstākais novērtējums, kāds !MOOZ līdz šim, 21 gada laikā, bijis. http://ej.uz/8fj4
